look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Freshly tapped growler poured into an antique Pilsner glass

Two finger frothy white foam cap. Amazing lacings. Hazy yellow with faint carbonation

Aroma of pine & citrus , orange

Pine notes on the tip of the tongue and in the middle. Nice hop flavoring but withoutt the bitterness.

No sudsing, almost creamy. Pine hops linger on the middle of the tongue bit without the bitterness.

Stopped by Trillium and loaded up with a bunch of different beers. Went with ratings from BA and first up was Melcher Street. Love it, delicious beer . Repeating this one (559 characters)

A-Pours a mildly hazed orange. More chill haze than anything else. The head birthed from the pour is thin but dense and slightly frothy. It leaves sticky lacing.

S-Pretty spectacular aroma. I initially get a bunch of fruity, exotic hop-notes along with a noticeable green onion aspect. Mango, marijuana, garlic, melons. The hoppiness hits all ends of the spectrum but they seem to balance out well.

T-The specifics of the nose are all present yet they melt into one another. Quite a hop concoction. It has a very earthy flavor that I think began with that green onion/garlic portion I found in the nose, I love it. The fruity hoppiness is brimming with guava, mango, melon and papaya...yes, that's specific but these flavors are quite exotic and very concentrated. Citrus and grass as well.

M-Has plenty of body to it. Hop resins are present. Just a tickle of alcohol. Softer carbonation but that may be from the pouring median. Modest bitterness; it's clearly bitter but not excessive.

O-Ho Hum, another Trillium offering that tastes like it was consumed from the cupped hands of Zeus. Love grabbing growlers from these boys; the beer is always delicious and the employees are cool beans. (1,193 characters)

The beer pours a nice bubbly and creamy head that dissipates somewhat quickly but still leaves a lot of lacing and leaves a film on the top of the beer. The beer itself is a clear orange but with some chill haze that is still see through. The beer color also appears to have slight brown notes. The beer smell is nothing short of divine. The hop notes consist of sweet orange with a bit of grapefruit and mango. Surprisingly, there also appears to be a slight green onion note. The beer taste is similar to the smell but with stronger green onion note and a much stronger grapefruit note. The sweet orange and mango notes are still there but more subdued. There also appears to be a pine resin note in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation and a very smooth feel. The taste is bitter but not too much. Overall, the beer is another fine addition from Trillium and worth getting at least once. (921 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Poured from a 750 mL bottle into a tulip. This was bottled today.

Appearance: Pours a pretty hazy yellowish amber and leaves a couple fingers of fluffy white head that slowly fade to a white layer atop the beer, and plenty of lacing. (4.75)

Smell: Big juicy citrus, some light earthy aromas and pine, light honey. The citrus is wonderful in here. (4.75)

Taste: Big spruce/pine comes out first, along with some pleasant earthy and big bursts of grapefruit, pineapple and more citrus. Supremely smooth and drinkable. Just wonderful. No flaws. (5)

Mouth-feel: Medium body and creamy with medium carb. Great feel, just a little bitter, but it makes this even better. (4.75)

Overall: Possibly the best IPA I've had, and I've had almost all of Trillium's stuff. So drinkable with fantastic citrus and pine flavors throughout. I could drink this every day. (5) (858 characters)

Pours that beautiful hazy golden orange with a thick white head. The head subsides nicely leaving a ton of lacing. Smell is on point with pineapple, mango, citrus, pine, and that standard Trillium pale ale yeast. The taste matches the aroma with a pit more of the piny/resinous character leading the pack. Finishes with a ton of citrus rind and light resin. The overall feel is nice. A bit dry.

Overall this is just another solid offering from my friends to the south. (470 characters)

The beer pours a nice golden, orange hue with a white foam head. Nose is pure mosaic; tropical, floral and some earthy tones. Taste follows suit with a light white wine presence, almost Nelson like. Good mouthfeel with a bit less carbonation than I was expecting. While FPPA and C St are above this IMO, this is still a solid beer that I wouldn't mind seeing in the regular lineup. (381 characters)

Another great hazy, bright orange gold trillium offering. Stinkier hop aroma from this one - orange, pineapple. Crisp grapefruit and a biscuity malt.

Incredibly smooth and balanced - very little bitterness, creamy feel. A 750 is no problem to put down in a short amount of time. (284 characters)

A: Hazy, light pineapple yellow in color with a thin, white lacing and minimal head.

O: Excellent IPA!! (340 characters)
